The 50 former APRC MPs and Governors who recently cross-carpeted to the National People’s Party have been allocated pick up trucks to help the NPP in encouraging its supporters to go out and register, Freedom Newspaper can report. The former MPs led by Abdoulie Suku Singhateh have rallied their support behind President Adama Barrow. They have been issued trucks to crisscross their respective constituencies across the country, to encourage NPP supporters to register ahead of the December 4th elections, we have gathered.
President Barrow is seeking second mandate. He was elected in December 2016 after defeating Gambia’s longtime dictator Yahya Jammeh.
The NPP had dispatched its agents in all voter registration centers across the country. The party is confident of wining the coming elections. Its main challenger is the main opposition United Democratic Party (UDP).
Incumbent President Barrow is said to be enjoying the support of the silent majority. His party is likely going to draw support and backing from Jammeh’s APRC party, one observer told us.
